Photoshoot with Eva Grace Photography | Prép Beauty Parlour

By | Photography | No Comments

 

One who browses our dream- like Instagram page will see that we are often doing different types of collaborations and photoshoots. Prép is a salon, but we also hope to establish a community where we can all support and promote each other in a fun, sister- bond way! We are huge fans of working with local talent because not only do we get exposure and experience from working with these individuals through their channels, we also make great friends and connections along the way!

This past month we collaborated with a few local models, athletes, and photographers to put together a small photoshoot to get to know each other while creating memories! Photographer @EvaGracePhoto opted for a care-free, relaxing beach vibe in this photoset. Eva Grace tells us that her:

“style of photography is fun and creative! I’m not about the stiff awkward poses, because truly those are not the ones that represent who you really are.”

The two lovely models in this shoot are the gorgeous @HaydenKortemoore, whose Instagram is filled with travel and adventure photos, and the classy fashionista @MegSayle. Hair and Makeup by Mika and Miku from Prép (us!), of course!

Take a look at these shots from our latest photoshoot and let us know if you have any questions below!

Spotlight: Engagement Photoshoot with Janelle Saccucci & @PhotosbyLees | Prép Beauty Parlour

True love is easily one of the most difficult things to capture in a photograph, especially when capturing the deepest meanings in the relationship and the love the couple truly has for one another.

Recently, one of our beloved clients- Janelle Saccucci (who is no stranger to us!) got engaged and announced the amazing news through a series of beautiful photos, taken by Lesa from @Photosbylees. Luckily, we were able to take part in this shoot by prepping Janelle! Hair and Makeup were performed by Miku and Mika! They opted for a European-sequel vibe and headed for the older brick building aesthetic in Gastown. Enjoy!

Congratulations Janelle and Linden! All of us at Prép Beauty Parlour are wishing you both the absolutely best!

YUMI Lash Lift: Is it right for me? | Prép Beauty Parlour

By | YUMI | No Comments

Best Vancouver Yumi Lash Lift | Prép Beauty Parlour 4

The YUMI lash lift and tint trend hit 2018 like a train! More ladies are opting for the miraculous lash lift service that lifts and darkens your natural lashes- giving the illusion of added length. All without having to worry about coming in for lash fills and other maintenance. Due to its popularity, we receive many questions about this comparably new lash service, and have put together the perfect guide before you book, YUMI Lash Lift: Is it right for me?

You have luscious and long natural lashes

The YUMI lash lift does an amazing job of giving the eye that extra pop even without the use of mascara and strip lashes. But like everything, it isn’t for everyone. This lash alternative only uses your natural lashes, no extra length or volume, meaning the length of your natural lashes are the extent to how long your lashes will look after the curl, we included a few photos to illustrate the different outcomes to help you decide. Keep scrolling to do your own “test” before you book your appointment!

Do your lashes pass the curl test?

If you are unsure whether your natural lashes would suit a lash lift, we like to ask clients to do a quick test at home before they book their appointment. It’s as simple as curling your lashes with a regular eyelash curler, and seeing how you like the look of your lashes. It is also important to note that your lashes may fall throughout the day using a curler, but will stay curled after the lash lift appointment.

Are you an avid make-up wearer?

The lash lift is a great alternative to lash extensions, but if you are a lover of strip lashes or dramatic volume lash sets, lash extensions may be a better option for you. However, if you wear light makeup- maybe just eyeliner and a dab of mascara, the lash lift looks great and really speeds up the get- ready process in the early mornings. Unlike lash extensions, the Yumi lash lift lifts only your natural lashes, meaning you don’t have to worry about using oil- free products, lash fall out, or having to do gymnastics just to remove makeup without disrupting your lashes. After the 48 hour setting period, you are free to wet your lashes and apply makeup as you normally would without it affecting the longevity of the lift!

Do you plan on getting lash extensions in the near future? 

What’s great about the lash lift, is its long life span of anywhere from 6-8+ weeks (Depending on the length of your own lashes and your lash cycle), and while it lasts a long time, many people also wish to get extensions very soon after their lift appointment.

Will you be getting the lash lift every 6-8 weeks?

Getting a lash lift is a lot like getting your hair permed.. but on a much smaller level. And just like your hair and cuticles, moisture is key to maintaining lashes. If you plan on getting the lash lift treatment done frequently, we recommend the a keratin nourishing oil/lotion we carry to be in your lash health’s best interest. With keratin in the formula, think of it as a building blocks that build and strengthen all the hairs on your body, including your lashes. This can be applied every night before bed or in the morning before your eye makeup routine 48 hours after your initial procedure.

Any more questions?

We hope to have helped you clear your concerns about the lash lift, and to help better understand who this treatment best benefits! For more information on the actual process of the YUMI lash lift, click here!
